Prince Harry raps Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme with James Corden

Like any good nineties kid, Prince Harry can rap the classic sitcom Fresh Prince of Bel-Airs theme song.

He took part in a 17-minute prerecorded segment on CBS’ The Late Late Show, talking about wide-ranging topics from The Crown to press intrusion in the United Kingdom.

In the short film, Prince Harry and James Corden have an adventure around LA on an open-top tour bus. Revelations include when he realised Meghan Markle was the one to son Archie’s first word.

“The second date I was starting to think that this was pretty special,” he told the British talk show host. “We went from 0 to 60 in like two months.”

The jaunt around Tinseltown involved a trip to the mansion from the hit 90s show. When asked if he remembered the theme song, he broke out in a rather unroyal rendition.

“The very house that Will Smith turns up to is good enough for the Fresh Prince is good enough for a real prince.” Corden pitches the royal couple, asking him if he remembers the song, putting him on the spot, a request he obliges.

Meghan Markle makes a very brief cameo during the house viewing. Appearing via FaceTime, she expresses hesitancy about moving again, saying “that’s wonderful but I think we've done enough moving,” after Corden says he’ll pass along their interest to the house’s owner.

We get a snippet of their intimate lives as she debuts her nickname for the prince as “Haz”.

Viewers learn only Markle can call him that, as Prince Harry shuts down Corden’s “I didn’t know that whats we are calling you now” with “No but you’re not my wife.”

This was before filmed before their controversial interview with superstar American talk show host Oprah Winfrey, which is set to air on CBS on 7 March.
